Halloween Look #3 Orange Smoky Eye

 

Helloo hello! Today I wanted to show you how I did this smoky orange halloween eye look. I went to the Cider Mill and and tonight was the season premier of Walking Dead so it's Halloween festivities all around today! If you want to see how I did this, please click below!

1. I started by priming my eye, then applied a matte orange shadow on the lid. You don't need to worry about taking it all the way into either corner. The orange I used is from my Shany Cosmetics Bold and Bright palette.

2.Then I took a matte black shadow on a shader brush and applied it on the inner and outer corner, and into the crease. The black shadow used here is Blackout from the Naked 2 palette.

3. Next I took a blending shade on a fluffy brush and blended the black in the crease out. I used Tease from the Naked 2 palette, I wanted a more cool toned shadow.

4. For the last few steps..I applied Urban Decay liner in Perversion to my waterline and tightlined with it. I smudged it out on my lower lashline with Blackout. I applied a matte white highlight to my browbone and blended it with Tease (I used NYX single shadow in White) I blended the orange and black as best I could together without making it just look like a muddy orange color. I did a lot of layering orange, then black.

I had all intentions of not applying false lashes because I wanted this orange to really pop.. But let me tell you my lashes were doing something crazy when I put mascara on them and that was not an option. Also, I filled my brows in with a brown black shadow and make them a little thicker, just for added drama.

And that's it! It's pretty easy but has killer results If I do say so myself. So I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, and I hope you enjoyed this post!

Thank you for reading, as always :)
